  While it might seem like an extremely general question to some, a very 
unexperienced acro pilot has a question.  This is as much a general question 
as anything, but i was just wondering when you all do a roll, most 
specifically in a slower rolling aircraft, do you apply the same direction 
of rudder as aileron and leave that, or other wise.  such as when passing 
through a 90 degree point in a left roll put in right rudder, then lessen it 
and at the inverted point put in up rudder, and through the 270 point put in 
left rudder, then pull?  might seem sort of vague, but response is 

Also, i understand the importance of spin training etc so thats not 
necessary to harp on.
